This game played out WAY differently than I thought it would. I assumed you would push porcupines and Glorious Ninja’s hard as I think you probably had the tech 2 advantage. I almost went with Fencers, but basically once you were playing it more safe, i just built a wall hoping it would be tough to trade against.
my original win condition was actually rampaging elephant. i had no intention of going tech 3. but when things turned out so slow, i knew i wouldnt survive if you dropped a huge hand of porcupines to easily stop my attacks.
as for sets, since i couldnt win, i definitely didnt want to give you the card, and i figured by taking out all your units, it would eliminate the HIdden Ninja Threat. Lastly, realized in the final hour that i needed to prevent you from trading Sets into my huge units, and by taking out your tech 2, prevent troq from coming out.
all in all, it sounds like i stumbled my way into this win, and lucked out with you not drawing wrecking ball right away. i know that will come back to even out against me over time though, so dont worry, justice will come for me.
